Hey, this is my friend Agent 0311's Volvo station wagon. Restored from a derelict field car over the last three years, off and on. A really fun car to drive, and should last a lifetime, unlike today's shit cars. These are rugged, honest cars with lots of charm and a great roar from the un-silenced twin SU carbs. High quality Bosch electrics and ZF steering box components are part of the reason these cars were so tough; most of the front end parts were still in perfect condition and were not replaced. This early Amazon still runs drum brakes all around, and charging is handled by generator. No upgrades were done to the car. The tires were sourced to match the original spare, still in the back. Hope you enjoyed looking at and listening to this great old car!

1967 Volvo 122S for Sale (Drive By and Test Drive)
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1967-volvo-122/ to see this fun sporty
1967 Volvo 122S for sale from Sunset Classics in Minneapolis Minnesota.
The previous owner was a real racing fanatic. He learned to build engines
and adjust a cars suspension and engine for maximum handling. This car
spent 18 years in Oregon with the previous owner, and although it was never
raced on a track, it was built for speed and handling.
The current owner is also a loving car enthusiast. The engine, suspension
and paint were all nice when the current owner bought the car in 2011, but
even so he continued to make improvements on the car. The stainless steel
Exhaust is one of the more notable
additions the car received since it found a new home here in Minnesota.
This '67 Volvo is the sixth car I've listed for the current seller. So
don't let the short ownership make you think this car is not loved and
appreciated like crazy. The seller is aiming toward owning 100 cars during
his lifetime, and since he doesn't own more than one or two at a time it's
time this Volvo moved on to a new, lucky owner. Even though the car must
move on, the seller mentioned this Volvo is tied for first in the
For the past two decades, this car has been blessed with very caring
owners. As a result this car runs, handles and responds as if it is giving
thanks for all the love and attention it has received. The front and rear
weight distribution is nearly even, the car is light relative to horsepower, and the
suspension has been lowered by about two inches and fitted with new tires
and shocks. So this 1967 Volvo 122S is about as fun to drive as any sports
car out there for sale today.
Take a look at the full specs at the link above as well as two detailed
photo galleries and more video. Give me a call to get your hands on this
fun sports car!
Thanks for watching - enjoy the drive by and test drive video and leave a
nice big thumbs up and a Like on this Volvo 122S.
The Volvo Amazon is a mid-size car manufactured by Volvo Cars from 1956 to
1970 and introduced in the USA as the 122S at the New York International
Auto Show in April 1959.
The Amazon shared both the wheelbase from its predecessor, the PV, as well
as its tall posture and high H-point seating — while offering three model
configurations: 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan and wagon. In 1959 Volvo
provided front seat belts as standard equipment on all the cars, including
the export models, becoming the world's first manufacturer to take this
step — later becoming the first car featuring three-point seat belts.
When introduced, the car was called the Amason (with an 's'), which derives
from the fierce female warriors of Greek mythology, the Amazons. Kreidler,
German manufacturer of motorcycles had already registered the name, and the
two companies agreed Volvo could only use the name domestically (i.e.,
within Sweden), modifying the spelling to Amazon. Subsequently, Volvo began
its tri-digit nomenclature and the line became known as the 120 Series.
The Amazon was originally manufactured at Volvo's Lundby plant in
Gothenburg and subsequently at the company's Torslandaverken, which began
operating in 1964. By the end of production, 234,653 four-door models,
359,917 two-door models and 73,220 station wagons had been produced, 60% of
them for export — for a total of 667,791 vehicles.
Cold Start the 1972 Plymouth Fury! Brrrr...
Hi! Its cold and there's a lot of snow on the ol' 72 Fury. Lets see if it
will go. I bought this car about 5 years ago, and I've been using it as a
daily driver since then. It shows about 75000 miles, so it should last me a
while yet. I like these fuselage models, especially the 72 Fury. Its a mean
looking old thing! I actually hit a moose with this car last week, and it
didn't leave a mark on the car! No wonder the cops liked these things,
they're incredibly tough, even if they are a bit hard to look at. Thanks
for checking it out!

Will it Run? Episode 15: 1941 Dodge Luxury Liner! Part 3 of 3
Hi! This time we're going to get this old Dodge going for the first time in
34 years! It has been parked in a container since my friend Mark bought it
from his grandfather's estate in the late 70's. It doesn't run, and needs a
pretty comprehensive mechanical overhaul, including the brakes, fuel,
electrical, and cooling systems, and the valvetrain.
The plan is to get this car plated again and use it for a fun summer
driver. We are not going to touch the body or interior of the car, just the
mechanical stuff. The interior is all original, and the body is totally
solid, if a little dinged up in a couple spots...
We did have to disassemble the doors to repair all of the window
regulators, which had broken and seized up.
Thanks so much to Mark for inviting me to participate in this project and
allowing me to film much of it for my channel here on YouTube. We had a lot
of fun getting this old Luxury Liner going, I hope you enjoy checking out
the video, and feel free to share it with your friends if you like this
kind of thing! Cheers, and thanks again to everyone for commenting and
Prepping 1967 Volvo Amazon 122 for Paint - IPD Build Off Production Video Diary 11
We sanded the car down to bare metal with 40 grit sandpaper using a Random
Orbital sander first. That took a long time, and lots of vibrations on the
hands (doesn't feel too good after several hours). We instead found better
results using 40 grit ceramic flap disc used for stripping paint fast with
our angle grinder. A 7" wheel would have been better. If you don't move
fast, it will start leaving grinding marks on the body. With the amount of
waves on the hood, roof and trunk it didn't really matter so much, since
our body shop said they'd "skin" the whole car with Bondo to get the
showroom finish. You could argue that prep is more important than paint in
the overall look of a car. While the car is at the body shop, we are
getting to work on the engine and picked up some sweet mystery wheels. Can
you guess what they are?
Next time we'll cover pulling the trim, windows and door handles.
